OLD AGE AND TREACHERY WILL OVERCOME YOUTH AND SKILL.

Yes, of course. I've noticed that you have a preference for red paint. I heard from a car dealer once, "The red cars are faster." I looked at him and he kept a straight face. I kept looking and he cracked a smile and he started laughing. I asked, "How many people fall for that line of BS?" He replied, "A lot - you'd be surprised."
a preference for red paint??? Hmm. I've owned several vehicles with red paint including my truck. Years ago a next door neighbor has a 442 (not red). He also had a hot wife that frequently caught my eye. Maybe a connection? No law against looking or he would have been in trouble eyeballing my hot wife.As a salesman some of my highest grosses were on red or yellow vehicles.
I came here looking for nudes.False advertising.
AmiIt is just sitting unclad in the open! How much more nude is that?
Wonder if it's a real W-30. It's got the right hood, but it makes me wonder what's under it.
DrJimAlas, locked and no one around.
Somebody did a NICE restoration!!! I'm betting it IS a real W-30.
Old NFOI'm in no way an Olds, or even GM expert, but as someone who has appraised many trade-ins, I didn't see anything to lessen my admiration.
Scratched around a bit, and here's what I'm guessing it is. A 1970 (side markers are unique) Olds 442. The W-30 package started with the 455 engine, included a fiberglass hood with functional cold air scoops, low restriction air cleaner, aluminum intake manifold, special camshaft, heads, carb, and distributor. They're supposed to have red plastic front inner fenders, but it's hard to tell from the picture. I think they might be red, but can't tell without doing some analysis of the picture for color levels and stuff.It's at food chain level with the 396/375 Chevelle, Ram Air IV GTO, and Buick GS-X.I was confusing it with the W-31, which had most of the same equipment, but used a high performance 350 to lower the price, and to drop the insurance rating to a lower level. They didn't sell very many W-31's, or the "Rallye 350" model, which was the hot rod parts on a rubber floor matted, stripped Cutlass.
Lust?????It look like True Love to me!
DrJimIf it is still there the next time I'min Fort Morgan I will take more pictures.
W.w.wNot often I circle the block to get a closer look at a car.
LSPThank you, in your official capacity.
Owned a '68 442. Drove it 96,000 miles and NOT ONE THING broke on that car.Always glad to see someone else taking car of a classic muscle car, but driving our '70 'Vette Big Block would make ya glad cars have improved so dramatically.
GBA Corvette is not a good choice for a daily driver (says a man who once had a Fiat Abarth Zagato as a daily driver).
